EA provides guidance on the use of interim sites for packaging waste exports – 18 Jan 2024

Jan 18, 2024

Following a query sent to the EA as to the evidence required for PRNs from exporters of packaging waste who use overseas interim sites prior to their material going to an approved Part C site, the EA has provided some comprehensive guidance that pulls together their expectations.

It seems unlikely that many exporters in this position could provide sufficient information to satisfy the list laid out in the guidance except where they are exporting material for storage prior to onward movement to the Part C site. But if the exporter can’t satisfy the requirements, then effectively, it rules out the issue of PRNs on the material.

The guidance has been encapsulated in this document EA interim site response.
